I'm a therapist who has worked with women, children, even abusers, in domestic violence and abuse (DVA) situations. These are never easy families to work with. Often I walk away from sessions feeling hopeless, and scared for the victims' safety -- but not for the reason that you think.

It wasn't long before culinary tips and recipes were exchanged.
